A matter of time, 60-years for Tonie, James Metting

Some may call it childhood sweethearts. Others may call it fate. But for Tonie (Hahn) and James Metting it was only a matter of time before they grew on each other.

Tonie was just 13 when she became infatuated with James. Call it your first teen crush.

“It started off as a car-pool situation because there was no school bus. Sometimes my mother and brothers drove. Sometimes they drove,” Tonie said. “Eventually, James was running buddies with my brother and I was the little sister that got in the way.”

As James hung around the Hahn home Tonie was given the push to take it one step further.

Grady Glover fundraiser to defray medical expenses

 

Four-month old Grady is like any other boy his age, his mother says. Some of his favorite toys are his elephant and monkey rattles and Glo Worm. But unlike most four-mouth olds, Grady has an injury that prevents him from moving his right arm.
 
“He’s a very happy baby, besides his arm injury,” Kai-Lani Ybarra said. “He is extremely active. He loves to play on his play mat. He giggles, laughs, squeals, talks and rolls over. He loves watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and is very ticklish. He loves playing with his cousins.”
 
Grady, the son of Ybarra and Isaiah Glover, was injured at birth. His injury, called Brachial Plexus Injury, occurs in 1 in every 1,000 natural births, Ybarra said.

A DeWitt County jury deliberated for a little over 30 minutes on Wednesday, Jan. 22, before sentencing Jose Barbontin Salas, 60, of Cuero to life in the penitentiary.

District Attorney Michael Sheppard offered evidence in the trial that Salas fled from the officer because he was trying to escape after having assaulted a former girlfriend and threatened to kill her with a knife.
